Hey there. Bitchio here. I have a questions about a couple of the visuals in Brick.

How did you come up with the idea to do the interesting fast cutting thing when Brendan, upon his first visit to The Pin, reveals he knows where he lives and subsequently gets knocked out by Tugger? Was there any specific inspiration for that?

Also, what filmmakers would you say have influenced you the most in terms of your visual style. Not necessarily your favorite filmmakers.

Those are good questions, ones I would've liked to have asked. I also thought the camera style reminded me a bit of Cowboy Bebop, if you're at all familiar with that show, Rian?

I dunno about his influence or familiarity with Bebop but I do know the show borrows a lot from noir so thats a possibility.

HUGE Bebop fan. Bebop pulls quite a bit from spaghetti westerns as well, which was another big visual influence in the stew.

dude, have you seen Samurai Champloo? Watanabe's series right after the Matrix shorts. It's as good as Bebop

Hell Yeah, Rian. You're a Cowboy Bebop fan? You just keep getting cooler and cooler. It's a shame you weren't raised a Nintendophile, but a Segaphile is better than a Playstationophile any day of the week. You just keep racking up the geek points, you might just catch up to me.

Now that I think about it, Brendan even sports a Spike Spiegel look in the film. The hair at least, for sure.

Wow, cool, I actually have the soundtrack (which is great for the movie making I-don't-have-a-soundtrack likes) and the DVD set next to me. The remixed the first few for dolby 5.1 but I only have the first one.

Weirdly enough I bought all the Bebop soundtracks (3 or 4 of them) and none of them had the end credit version of "The Real Folk Blues." I had to P2P it.

And the film didn't even feature the Apollo 440 track, right? That would bum me out. Like when the Broderick Godzilla didn't have Godzilla's theme. I WAS LIVID!

Hey Rian, I have the box CD set thing with 3 or 4 cds in it and it has the Real Folk Blues on it.

Doggy Dog and Ask DNA are my personal favorites... very fun and cool soundtrack and great for movies!

Is it the full rocking version from the end credits, though? Or a tamed down remix? The ones I had had a mellow horn-less version. (god i'm a freakin geek man...)

Aww man, I actually downloaded the real version too... the one on the CD is Live which isn't bad if you like the cheering of the Japanese drowing out your music!

It is pretty rockin' though.

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. Dude, I cannot beleive you are a Bebop fan. Jesus christ that rocks. It's nice to see that people are actually seeing it (/me is geeking out right now). I was one of the few who actually got to see Knockin' on Heavens door in theatres (I refuse to call it Cowboy Bebop: The Movie damnit) and I'm a Yoko Kano fan.

I could go on a huge rant, but I'll stop there.

First off circuit, Yoko does some pretty awesme stuff...

...and I envy your ability to see KoHD in the theaters. The movie was actually really really good.

Also, Rian, do you listen to the Brick soundtrack? I know that might be weird but it's an awesome soundtrack- it's my homework soundtrack... easy to work to and concentrate during.
